Last Saturday it was stinking hot and we took Pudding Pie swimming for the first time since last summer - she loved it! There were squeals of delight, and much kicking of legs and attempts at blowing bubbles. It was cute because last summer, she was more just a cutely-clad blob wallowing in the pool with mom and now she's a whole year older and getting much more out of it.
Today was Toddler Playtime with Miss Renee and it was also the first time she refused to share . . . She is usually so sweet and will willingly hand over her toy to the older kid who demands it. Today she tried to take a toy from a younger kid and then kicked up a tremendous fuss when she was thwarted. Mom was horrified, where did my sweet cherub pick up THIS behavior?! Of course the answer is self-evident - from the other kids! Fortunately the drama was short-lived. We're moving on from babydom and I'm learning about the challenges of raising of a toddler . . .
